These Republicans Could Challenge Trump In 2020 Presidential Election

Christy Curtis | 04 August, 2017, 00:15

Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., center, walks to his seat as he attends a luncheon with other GOP Senators and President Donald Trump in the State Dinning Room of the White House in Washington.

"To carry on in the spring of 2017 as if what was happening was anything approaching normalcy required a determined suspension of critical faculties", he writes, "and tremendous powers of denial".

"We can not claim to place the highest premium on character, then abruptly suspend the importance of character in the most vital civic decision that we make", Flake wrote.

As CHQ Chairman Richard Viguerie recounted in his book TAKEOVER, The Conscience of a Conservative "was our new testament", Pat Buchanan later said.

Mr Lance said, however, that he also had great hopes for Mr Kelly's ability to bring order to the White House and inject new energy into Mr Trump's agenda. But Flake admitted that such techniques were "a monumental dodge" and compared the situation to a biblical flood. It would be like Noah saying, "If I spent all my time obsessing about the coming flood, there would be little time for anything else". "At a certain point, if one is being honest, the flood becomes the thing that is most worthy of attention". Walker is also in the midst of his best press run in a very long time - on the news that FoxConn, a massive electronics company, will be building a $10 billion factory in Wisconsin.

My fear is that many Republicans are angry with President Donald Trump's Twitter feed and his tone alone.

So, where should Republicans go from here? "I think we're going to have to involve the other party". Second, Republicans need to take the long view when it comes to issues like free trade: Populist and protectionist policies might play well in the short term, but they handicap the country in the long term. The Republicans, Flake says, should defend the "institutions" and "prerogatives" that work well, citing the Senate filibuster that Trump has been tweeting about getting rid of.

Sounds like a whiff to me.

'The Dark Tower' review: Incoherent to all but Stephen King fans
Howard reportedly offered Arcel input on the music while co-writer and producer Akiva Goldsman helped the craft the final film . Take the Dark Tower of the title for example, a curiously wilted edifice that supposedly determines the fate of the universe.

In one sense, the current circumstances mirror the GOP divisions more than a century ago when Theodore Roosevelt's breakaway Progressive party undercut President William Howard Taft and made Woodrow Wilson the first Democratic president in 16 years. And he's right about defending institutional norms. Whose jobs went away because of globalization? If we want to preserve the benefits of globalization, we should probably rewrite the tax code in ways that will displease multinationals, and we should also probably nudge surplus countries such as China and Germany into being more constructive economic partners.

The book unofficially kicks off what is expected to be a challenging 2018 re-election campaign for Flake.

Of course, one of those attacks came from President Trump himself, who repeatedly questioned Obama's citizenship during the former president's tenure.

Flake has long known about the risks of facing off against Trump and the Republican Party. All of that was on offer in 2016, and was flatly rejected by GOP primary voters. Sen.

Graham said the talks began shortly after the 2016 presidential campaign concluded, and both Graham and Ward said further conversations took place as recently as two weeks ago.

"As every conservative leader knows, my father, L. Brent Bozell, Jr., ghost-wrote "Conscience of a Conservative" for Barry Goldwater".

Our recent book, Asymmetric Politics, explains why the GOP can not easily be diverted from its conservative path.
